A rose by any other name...

I sat for a while trying to come up with a clever name for my blog. I wanted it to say something about me. I tried alyson's life but I thought that might be too boring. Looking at other blogs I thought I could copy theirs like al the mom or al's blog or even ally (but I have never been an ally and I don't thing it suits me). All of these ideas lacked originality. I wanted something that could capture all aspects of my life, my family, my interests. Finally I looked right in front of me and there was a New Testament Student Study Guide.

I'm hardly comparing myself to the Bible, although I may get a little religious, but like the Bible I'm sure I will cover political, family, and religious topics. But most of all this is a testament to my life. Eventually when the creative juices are flowing I may change it but until the this isn't The New Testament it's A New Testament.

I wonder what would have happened if there was an apple in front of me instead of a study guide.

Hi Al -

I guess you know Jen-the-Mom and she has a link to your blog - that's how I got here! Anyway, I hope you enjoy blogging. One of these days, I'll start my own.

Being an English teacher, I have to offer some constructive criticism. You are spelling-challenged. :-) I mean that in the nicest way. If there's a spell check facility, it should be used. If not, well, then I'll have to deal with it. You have at least 2 or 3 incorrect spellings of the word 'testament'. You're blog name is unfortunately misspelled. I hope you accept my comments in the spirit in which they are given.

Happy Blogging!

I dunno, I kinda like the sound of 'Al's Apple Peelings'
Good luck and pay no attention to the little man behind the curtain. :O
